SEOUL, South Korea - Samsung Electronics (KRX: 005930) announced the introduction of two new image sensors, ISOCELL Vizion 63D and ISOCELL Vizion 931.

Why It Matters: 

The release of the ISOCELL Vizion 63D and 931 sensors signifies Samsung's continued commitment to advancing imaging technology.

These additions to the ISOCELL Vizion series, first introduced in 2020, are designed for various mobile, commercial, and industrial applications.

The technology is expected to significantly impact the machine vision sector, particularly in areas such as robotics and extended reality (XR).

The Key Points

  • ISOCELL Vizion 63D: As a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor, the Vizion 63D uses echolocation-like methods for 3D imaging. It's the first iToF sensor with an integrated depth-sensing ISP, resulting in a 40% reduction in power consumption and support for QVGA resolution at 60 fps.
  • ISOCELL Vizion 931: This global shutter sensor captures fast motion without distortion. It's suitable for XR devices, gaming systems, and drones and features a unique VGA resolution and a high % quantum efficiency of 60% at 850nm.
  • Both sensors offer technical enhancements such as the smallest pixel size for iToF sensors and the integration of advanced technologies such as BST and FDTI.

What They Say

"Designed with the latest sensor technologies, Samsung's ISOCELL Vizion 63D and ISOCELL Vizion 931 will be essential in facilitating machine vision for future high-tech applications such as robotics and extended reality (XR),"

Haechang Lee, executive vice president of the Next Generation Sensor Development Team at Samsung Electronics. 
"Leveraging our rich history of technological innovation, we are committed to advancing the rapidly expanding image sensor market."

What Comes Next:

The ISOCELL Vizion 63D and 931 are available for sampling to OEMs worldwide.

Their integration into future devices is expected to drive innovation in robotics, XR, and other fields.

Samsung's continued development and release of such advanced sensors indicates the company's strategy to maintain a leading position in the image sensor market.
